Oh Hail No! Hail Storm Damages and more...

2507 ratings | 33598 views
Today I'm going over hail damage caused from a recent storm that hit the property. The hail ranged up to golf ball size and damaged the travel trailer, sunken greenhouse, shipping container shop and several other structures and plants. I'll show the damage that the hail caused, talk about what repairs I have planned and what's up next in the travel trailer project. A bummer it was, but we are still grateful and thankful that is wasn't worse :) One thing I do want to point out though... is that, while this is an impactful thing that happened to us, it pails in comparison to others who are currently experiencing real disasters all over the world. Wildfires, flooding, hurricanes, earthquakes, losses of loved ones, etc,. So please understand that while this event was a sad moment for us, we are still very grateful and thankful for our health and that our house is still standing. Our prayers go out to those who are experiencing real disasters and encourage as many folks to help when they can, in whatever form works for them. As always, thanks for watching and let me know if you have any questions! Joe If you guys like the videos I make and would like to help support the channel at no additional cost to you.

So sorry

Sorry for all your hard work, but it goes to show how well you build. Chin up.

My daughter's VW convertible top survived much larger hail then this, I was surprised, tho it did break the front windshield. I'll never forget the sound of cue ball size hail coming down the street, it sounded like a train rumbling towards us.
Atypical _Tim (22 days ago)
How are your plants recovering? I live a few miles north of you but didn't get that amount of hail.
Shawn Vanden (25 days ago)
Great attitude Joe, keep up the good work inspiring us through your work, perseverance & spirit !

I used Suntuf Commercial Polycarbonate and it has withstood golfball sized hail with zero damage. Tuff stuff!

I see you've done a lot of damage very successful due to the rains full of things you do I follow the turkey was so damaged by hail sorry I did not get a lot of labor history
R V (2 months ago)
Wow, I hate that for you. Btw, in just a few short words, have you figured out how you're going to fix the damage? The Bondo route? Replace the panels? I apologize if you've covered that somewhere else...

I am Burls son in law. And yes I love watching your videos. I hope to make it out there and meet you and the rest of the family before to long. I have been hearing stories about the family for the 15 years I worked for burl. He thought more of les and lynn and their family than anyone else I know of.
Justin Bailey (2 months ago)
how does this work with insurance? because you built most of the stuff, can they figure the cost and repay you? or do you have to hire a contractor to fix it? Sorry for your loss. hope it all works out.

Peter G. (3 months ago)
Over a month later and I’m wondering did the small hail go down the drain pipes and make ice water in the storage barrels? I’m in Oklahoma and we’re no stranger to large hail and tornadoes. They’re very rarely fatal with our advanced Doppler systems and insurance never bats an eye after a storm.
Peter G. (3 months ago)
PS you can see hail on Doppler it’s so dense it doesn’t have much of a return and shows up black in the core of the storm cells.
18magicMARKer (3 months ago)
its probably going to happen again...I think maybe wood siding? I like how wood looks on campers...gives it warm tone and blends well in nature plus it'll absorb hail better and can be replaced in strips.

Was really interested in the corrugated asphalt roofing. Sad to see it can't take the heavy hail.
dolinick (3 months ago)
tom jackson (3 months ago)
A good quick fix is to spread both sides of a piece of denim with plastic roofing cement, and to work it tight to the roof with no air pockets. I have had those patches last almost a decade. I also wonder what preparations can be made to protect solar panels.
Leon Steenkamp (3 months ago)
Hi. Sorry about the hail damage specially to the trailer. An idea for a tough durable fix could be to use body filler to smooth out the dents and then to have it Line-Xed. Line-X can be applied in different colors so you can maintain the white. It will also help with future hail issues and bush-proof your trailer and help even more with waterproofing. www.linex.com Good luck with all your repairs.
Michael Mantion (3 months ago)
dimpled trailers are more aerodynamic. I say leave the dents.

Did the hail affect your water harvesting?

I was so saddened to see your damage from the hail storm. As my granny used to say "as long as you and yours are health and safe, "things" can be replaced." You and your family take care and I will be watching for more videos.
Jonathan Ransom (4 months ago)
I hate hail.
oi oi oi (<< this means Gday).... did dman and hanah get hammered too??? cos theres no vid from him in 2 weeks? unless he did something stupid and fell off the lift building his garage. BTW can u get a thicker more industrial poly carbinate for the greenhouse? and doesnt it shit ya after all ur work on that fantastic camper trailer build.

CoGhostRider (4 months ago)
I found this series today and was very interested in how it would turn out. Very disappointed right now.
William Bays (4 months ago)
I had a idea for the greenhouse. Can you get hold of some chain link fencing ? Smallest spacing or gape prefer. Space and attach, it about a inch or two above the plastic panels. That could protect the panels, but still allow sunlight and rain water in and still protect.
William Bays (4 months ago)
How goes the storm damage repairs?
Robert Wedderburn (4 months ago)
So sorry to see! I can’t wait to see the next travel trailer built video! So sad to see how it got damaged by hail. Hail can be a big problem here in South Africa as well but just like you said, big hail storms are few and far between. Keep going and it will be fun to see how you get all these things up and running as before.

Call your insurance agent your policy usual has an “out building” coverage.

Sorry mate, hopefully insurance can cover it. (Insurance- hahahahahahhaha Bend me over and).
homesteadonomics (4 months ago)
thank you! and we are currently still in the seeing how well the insurance thing is going to go... looking marginally okay except for a couple of the estimates were just way off
ECO Homestead (4 months ago)
You have a pretty good outlook considering the damage. Way to keep your head up.
homesteadonomics (4 months ago)
thank you!
UK Tony (4 months ago)
Joe, our hearts go out to you and your family. I know you say in your comments that it could have been worse but it still must be pretty devastating. To see all of your hard work damaged or destroyed in a few short hours must be very disheartening. The way you spoke of it reminds me of the poem "IF" by Rudyard Kipling and you certainly qualify for the sentiment within it. Kindest regards from the UK and hoping you can start sorting things out.
UK Tony (4 months ago)
Joe, the poem "IF" sums up your attitude and approach exactly. I know part of it is on the players tunnel at Wimbledon and I think also at Forest Hills to inspire the players. Also worth reading is the extract called "The man in the arena" by Theodore Roosevelt which describes your hard work whereas we subscribers just watch. I hope you are inspired as all your subscribers feel your pain on so many, many hours of hard work being negated by nature. Stay strong and we all send you and your family every good wish.
homesteadonomics (4 months ago)
thank you Tony! It has been a little tough but we are still very thankful of how blessed we are. I will look up that poem too... my daughter is actually really into poetry at the moment... she's been creating her own poems too! blows my mind because she is only 5 and I can't for the life of me having any interest in poetry or anything like that until maybe my teenage years ;)

I first came to your YouTube channel when you were in the beginning stages of your travel trailer build. You were welding up the bottom trailer portion. I checked back recently and saw that it looked all complete from the outside. I was pleasantly surprised your progress and how good it looked. Then I saw the damage to the skin from the hail, damn! The nice clean looks of it are ruined! I'm really sorry for the troubles the hail caused you around your property, I feel for your neighbors too!... It seems the steeper the roofs are on structures, the less damage you get from huge hail!
homesteadonomics (4 months ago)
Thanks Chris! we are thankful that its still on the manageable level... bummer, but still nothing that can't be fixed. But man are you right about the trailer... my stomach was in knots during that hail... but I think I'm getting a good plan together to reskin the two main affected parts of it
Saila Sobriquet (4 months ago)
Man, I'm sure sorry that happened to you, especially the trailer; that would be a tough one to take. Nonetheless, I particularly like your big-picture, objective, positive perspective. I hope the repairs go as well as they can. And I hope all the best for you and your family.
homesteadonomics (4 months ago)
thank you Saila! I think they will go well for the most part... just mostly a time thing... if I could get it all done by the end of this year I would be really happy :)
Mark Biallas (4 months ago)
So sorry to see the hail damage, especially to the travel trailer. Wishing you the best on the recovery.
homesteadonomics (4 months ago)
thank you mark! we will push ahead and hope it goes as smoothly and quickly as possible... I was really hoping to have the trailer done by now... oh well... we are still very blessed fortunate that its mostly manageable stuff
juan jorge velazco (4 months ago)
que mala onda, no se puede contra la naturaleza. fuerza men.
I'd sell the camper cheap and start again with the new improved version.
homesteadonomics (4 months ago)
too much sweat into it by now... haha... I will probably add a new skin and see how it goes after that... maybe some years down the road I can convince my wife to let me start a new one ;)
Toni Brock (4 months ago)
How devastating! It just broke my heart to see all of the damage. MAN! I am definitely grateful that you and your family are safe and well. Wish we could all help you with repairs.
homesteadonomics (4 months ago)
thank you Toni! big bummer it was but we are still very thankful it wasnt worse and most of it is still manageable
Caleb Austin (4 months ago)
Sorry for the damages. Hope you can catch up all the repairs soon!
homesteadonomics (4 months ago)
thanks caleb... I'm looking forward to getting everything caught up as soon as possible
Bones Spratt (4 months ago)
Its hard to see all the damage you took after watching the hours of work you put into each one of those projects. I know you are pretty handy and will find a way to re-make everything better than it was to start with! Good luck, can't wait to follow the reconstruction!
homesteadonomics (4 months ago)
thank you Bones... it'll be a chore but we'll get it all repaired and maybe even some modifications added to some of the outbuildings to help mitigate future weather issues :)

DanielinLaTuna (4 months ago)
Riding through South Dakota late '90's on our big bikes, my brother-in-law and I encountered golfball sized hail. The locals advised us to get a room and put the bikes under roof! Which we did, thanks to their good advice. were you able to recover any water from the hailstorm? Always appreciate your content. Thanks, from SoCal. Dan
homesteadonomics (4 months ago)
sounds like it was some good an timely advice they gave! as for water... yes, the tanks have been overflowing for over a month! :)
Xólotl Mēxihcah (4 months ago)
Hi, Joe! That hail was related to _hurricane Willa,_ which just directly hit your Sonoran Desert neighbor Mexican west States of _Sonora, Sіnaloа, Durango, Baja California, Colima, etc._ *I wish you health and strength! ¡Saludos desde México, amigo!*
homesteadonomics (4 months ago)
Yes, it was I believe! Hope you didnt get any real bad stuff down there. I would have rather had the hail than been on the coast for that one! great to hear from you sir! Friend, Amigo and Neighbor :D
K. Cashman (4 months ago)
Sorry for your losses (but as you've said, it coulda been a lot worse!). Thx for the footage. Leave the trailer as is--it makes it look mean! Plus, it'll always b a good conversation starter when you pull into a new campground. B well.
homesteadonomics (4 months ago)
haha... if it had been done and we were using it I think I might leave it but because its not finished I kinda feel I need to have it 'new looking' once done .. haha... so a new skin will have to go on the affected sides ;)
Greg Wade (4 months ago)
OH man am sorry for the hit you took. We get a lot of hail here so know just what you went through. The trees didn't seem to have damage to the bark so they will leaf out pretty soon. As for the greenhouse that made me cry as you worked so hard on it. Great news about your home, and yes everything else can be repaired. Take care and stay strong.
Greg Wade (4 months ago)
We live in a hail belt so get lots in the spring and again in the fall. One year it stripped the trees of even their bark and those ones died. Couple years ago had hail the size of fast balls and that punched holes in siding of the house but the old stucco that was under didn't even get a crack. Metal roof on barns just dented so that was a good thing. Modifications when repairing always a good thing. New and improved the best way to go.
homesteadonomics (4 months ago)
Thank you Greg! Yes it was a stomach turner... we get hail most years here but just more of the smaller type... never this big stuff... but we will get it all repaired and maybe even make some modifications to help mitigate this in the future
Wayne Waldrep (4 months ago)
Dang Joe. I'm just getting to see this. Ugghhh. I know it was hard for you to watch because it was tough to see as well. Glad things weren't any worse although what you have looks pretty devastating. Use that insurance bud....that's why ya pay it year after year!! Sorry for the loss. :)
homesteadonomics (4 months ago)
thank you Wayne! it was tough but hopefully it won't be too long before we've got it all cleaned up :)

Been there, we have several of these a year around us here in Oklahoma. Sorry to hear about your damage.
homesteadonomics (4 months ago)
yes, you guys have this type stuff way more commonly than us I believe... back when I lived in Nebraska we had several large marble sized storms.. and had heard of baseball sized but I never got to see that luckily

Tom Angle (4 months ago)
I feel for you. We had a hail storm with marble size hail earlier this year, just as the garden was starting to produce. I cannot imagine the hail that you got. Make me believe a thick metal roof is the way to go. Thanks for sharing the what held up and what did not.
homesteadonomics (4 months ago)
Yes, the thick guage corrugated held up well on the house... lots of dimples and cosmetic damage but overall it held strong :)
Bruce S (4 months ago)
I'm sorry to see all that damage, especially since so much was to things you built. We had a hail storm a couple years ago, with even bigger hail. We keep our vehicles in the garage, so they were fine, but most of our neighbors don't, and had a lot of broken windows and bad dents. One guy had five cars out in the driveway and street, all severely damaged. Almost every roof in the neighborhood had to be replaced, along with a lot of siding, solar panels, and skylights. Of course plants were shredded. The tiles on our outdoor kitchen were smashed and had to be replaced, but I did that with some nice marble, which looks a lot better than the original ceramic. So in short, I feel your pain, even though what we lost wasn't things I made. I built a sacrificial cover for the tile on the outdoor kitchen, so another storm like that won't destroy it. If you're looking for suggestions on the trailer, I'd say if possible it would be good to add another layer of insulation over the existing (dented) panels, then new panels over that. I know that may be a problem for windows and door, so maybe not practical, but if it can be done, that would be that much more sound and heat insulation. It's such a joy to see all the things you build, and such a shame to see it damaged like that. I look forward to the fixes.

As a DIY person myself I really feel for you as I know the amount of time and love that go into these projects only to stand by helplessly and watch them getting damaged. I am glad you are all safe as golf ball sized hail is dangerous.
homesteadonomics (4 months ago)
Yep, it was a gut wrencher for sure... but hopefully in the next couple months I will be able to get most of it fixed and whole again :)

Oh HAIL THAT SUCKED!! I'm so so sorry about all your damage you suffered. I know how you feel. Building things w/your on two hands & something like this, tearing your hard work of labor up just sucks big time. You know how I really liked your camper trailer a lot. It just makes me sick knowing how hard you worked on it. If I could help you, I think you know I would do my best. I sure would in a heartbeat. I'm just as sick as you & it's not even mine to be upset about. I wish you well & thank God no one was hurt in your family. Good luck in putting everything back as good as you can. Which I know you can do it. Wishing you & your family good vibes during these hard times. Thank you for all you do for us, your viewers, Chris from Missouri
stilcrazychris (4 months ago)
+homesteadonomics I think I to would of said a few hundred choice words to. It just sucks, bc you worked so hard on it. I know it was a job. I've done a lot of holding for my father when he was welding & building on to the house. I just so sorry you went through it. Good luck w/all the getting it all back. You'll be good to go, Chris from Missouri
homesteadonomics (4 months ago)
thank you Chris! It was a real bummer of a thing to watch... I might have even said a few (hundred...lol) choice words during the storm...haha.... but we will get it all back together as best we can... slowly but surely :)
gutspraygore (4 months ago)
Thanks for making the video. It was informative. Hope you all recover quickly.

I had a Hail Storm at my house back in 1984 that Broke All my windows-both Panes on North side of House, Tore the Gutters off house, destroyed the Roof, air Condition unit outside, hail went through roof on Popup Camper, destroyed all the boat seats on fishing boat, Totaled my 1974 Olds. Cutlass, Tore all the Bark off freshly planted fruit trees--Some of the Hail was size of Softball--when Hail was over with then the Tornado came over house and Broke several Rafters in Attic. This Old man Hopes he never has to Go through another Hail Storm..

Showed Mom this clip, she said when she was small they had a hail storm where they lived and her sister yelled "Daddy, Daddy, someone prayed for ice cubes." you having a small child, I thought you might appreciate.
William Bays (4 months ago)
First glad to hear that you and the family were not hurt, Everything else is just stuff and can be replaced. Nothing could have replaced loved ones. Did the storm at least fill all of your water tanks ? That would be at lease give one plus.
